CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 22, 2004 -- Springfield College cruised to its fourth consecutive New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship this weekend at MIT.

With 1,027.5 points, the Pride easily outdistanced second-place MIT (642) and Wellesley (558).

Conference champions included junior All-American Megan Skinner (Acton, Mass.), who won the 500 freestyle (5:03.77, NEWMAC record) and the 200 backstroke (2:05.92, NEWMAC record); senior Jessica Defoe (Monson, Mass.) in the 100 butterfly (59.06, NEWMAC record), and sophomore diver Sara Tremblay (Agawam, Mass.) on the one-meter board (341.75).

SC dominated the competition in the relays, with Skinner and Defoe swimming legs on three championship teams. On SC's first-place 400-medley relay (4:01.93, NEWMAC record), Skinner and Defoe were joined by senior Beth Byron (Haverhill, Mass.) and sophomore Emily Phillips (North Windham., Conn.). Defoe, Skinner, Byron and sophomore Alicia Hart (West Hartford, Conn.) picked up a conference title in the 200 medley relay (1:50.05), and Defoe, Skinner, Hart and Phillips won the 400 freestyle relay (3:34.79, a NEWMAC record).
